Really? A bit thin skinned aren't we? So much for the First Amendment.

And what's with the Mayor's last name? ;)

Norfolk, Neb. (KMTV) - Mayor Sue Fuchtman confirms to KMTV Action 3 News that Department of Justice officials are in Norfolk to discuss a controversial parade float.

Last Saturday, a man put an outhouse on his parade float with a sign that read, "Obama Presidential Library." A zombie dressed as a farmer was leaning against the building. Parade organizers told KMTV they talked to the creator, who's a farmer, and he said the zombie was supposed to be him, not the president.

Today, the Iowa-Nebraska NAACP State Area Conference of Branches sent a news release to KMTV Action 3 News, saying they were meeting with Mayor Fuchtman Thursday afternoon. "The State Area NAACP has received numerous concerns and inquiries about this issue," the group said, "and appreciate Mayor Fuchtman and the parade officials' willingness to have open dialog (sic) and address these concerns."

This afternoon, Mayor Fuchtman told KMTV Action 3 News that she and the city administrator would be meeting with a representative of the Department of Justice before the meeting with the NAACP. She did not know if the media would have accessibility to the meeting, as it was being facilitated by the Department of Justice. The DOJ apparently told the city it had received concerns, including from the NAACP, regarding the float.

Surprised the usual ones are not here defending Dear Leader already from that "racist" farmer like they usually do in these types of threads

That has been the point, especially since Holder was appointed by you-know-who to head the (In)Justice Department.
